The room

We stayed in the Queen Balcony room with an ensuite bathroom. The room was spacious and provided all the basic amenities. The balcony provided for beautiful views of the skyline. It was east-facing, so we got an amazing sight when we woke up, the sky painted in all different colours.

The room was equipped with a standard queen bed, small table and chairs, a wardrobe and a TV. The bed was so comfortable and we had a really good night of sleep.

For me, one of the highlights of staying at Space Hotel was the rooftop. This is a huge space with awesome views of the city (if you wake up early enough you will see the sunrise, too!). There are plenty of chairs around to chill out and bask in the sun in summer months. In winter it is especially good, because you can warm up in the spa pool while enjoying the views (check out more things to do in winter in Melbourne).


Staff are onsite 24/7 to help with anything. Overall they were very friendly and helpful, and the service was pretty fast and efficient. For the most part, they went out of their way to be accommodating.

If your aim is to explore the city centre of Melbourne, Space Hotel is a good place to stay. It is central and has everything you need in one building. If you are staying in Melbourne long term, they also have options for that.

If you’ve been unsure about where to stay in Melbourne, guaranteed Space Hotel has something for you. Make sure you book directly through their website for a special deal.
